Season 2, Episode 9: Motivational Strategies

Motivation by definition (according to the Business Dictionary) is the internal and external factors that stimulate desire and energy in people to be continually interested and committed to a job, role or subject, or to make an effort to attain a goal. Motivation results from the interaction of both conscious and unconscious factors such as the (1) intensity of desire or need, (2) incentive or reward value of the goal, and (3) expectations of the individual and of his or her peers. These factors are the reasons one has for behaving a certain way. An example is a student that spends extra time studying for a test because he or she wants a better grade in the class.

There are two types of motivation — Extrinsic vs Intrinsic Motivation

  • Extrinsic: are those that arise from outside of the individual and often involve rewards such as trophies, money, social recognition or praise.
  • Intrinsic: are those that arise from within the individual, such as doing a complicated crossword puzzle purely for the personal gratification of solving a problem.
